Kiwi anti-whaling activist Peter Bethune is expected to be arrested by the Japanese authorities when he arrives in Tokyo today on the whaling ship Shonan Maru 2.
Aint karma a BITCH? :D

Bethune has been held on the harpoon ship after a collision which destroyed his own boat last month....that he caused.

Japan’s coast guard has an arrest warrant for him on suspicion of trespass and his wife Sharyn, who hasn’t heard from him for almost a month, fears Japanese authorities may make an example out of him. If convicted, Bethune could face imprisonment of up to three years.Please...make it five...or six...or seven...maybe the next whale humping, tree hugging hippie eco terrorist will think twice about boarding a foreign flag ship in international waters to make a "citizens arrest".

I am still to be informed just WHAT authority he had to make said "arrest"....well we know that answer to that...none.

Some days are just GOLD.....:D
